The vocabulary of Russian with its unfamiliar roots, prefixes and suffixes is acknowledged to be one of the main difficulties for the non-Slavonic student of the language. The "meanings" given to prefixes in particular have, ever since I became aware of the existence of prefixed verbs in Russian, per. lexed rne by their multiplicity and unanalysability: why, for example, did za- express both the beginning and the end of an action? When I came, therefore, to choose a subject of research for the degree of PhD., it was natural to wish to elucidate such problems. A historical viewpoint was chosen because of the light it could throw on the facts of Modern Russian.
